Photographer With Sleep Disorder Recreates His Nightmares in Photos For The World to See

We may call these photographs terrifying, scary nightmares. For photographer Nicolas Bruno though, these are much more beyond just words. These are the terrors the 22 year-old photographer actually deals with. Nicolas Bruno suffers from sleep paralysis. As he enters the state of REM sleep, he ends up awake, but paralyzed.

Improbability: Well thought, but utterly useless objects

Images and art by Italian photographer Giuseppe Colarusso are quite tantalizing, sometimes creating a surreal world, and often playing with the idea of something that’s possible, but really improbable. Starting off on the path of creativity and off the usual, Giuseppe got his first photograph by creating a pinhole camera out of a shoebox. He used a photographic paper at the bottom of the box and a hole at the center of the lid to get the camera into action.

Ah! What a nice, plaid group of humans

Chinese photographer Zhang Bojun has a nice collection of plaid designs in his portfolio. These “designs” are digital manipulations created from overhead images from the vast sea of humans that are Beijing’s streets. The artist photographs the swarms of people that throng the streets of Beijing and repeats observed patterns, while reducing the actual image to a bird’s eye view. These images take the form of interlocking designs that are usually seen in plaid fabric.

Classic glass plate portraits made into modern day fine art

Classic glass plate portraits have a look and charm of their own, and a touch of modern technology can see them going further than their original image. The images you see here are the work of Costica Acsinte, who was possibly the only professional photographer in Romania for decades after the WW I. Nearly 5,000 of his glass plate negatives have been retrieved, and are being digitized at the moment.

There’s a lot of room for creativity in selfies though, as Helene Meldahl (Mirrorsme) shows. The Norway born, Washington DC based artist does drawings on her bathroom mirror and then poses with those drawings to make beautiful images.
